Endgame which has enjoyed three straight weeks in the top spot at the box office amassing $1.2 billion at the global box office will have a tough fight against the silent assassin, John Wick in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

A new report from Deadline indicates that John Wick: Chapter 3 is set to make at least $55 million in it's opening weekend, tracking to beat Avengers: Endgame’s $30 million projection.
